Tolerance runs both ways.
During the Republican National Convention, I saw hateful posts and tweets from Democrats on facebook and twitter.

What has happened to respect? It does not exist in politics anymore.
Do your due diligence, check facts, check platforms, vote responsibly. If you don’t, you’re part of the problem.
You don’t need to spit on someone else and their beliefs to be American. We’re all free to speak our mind, but let’s do it with a level head and LOVE. Walk away when you get angry. Not saying that I’m perfect or that I don’t get angry and take it out on the someone in a hurtful way. I am guilty of that MANY times over. So I know from experience how hard it is to bite your tongue and cool down. I fail at it all the time.
It’s good that people are so passionate about the future of America, but I cannot support hate in any form.
Politics would be cooler be if they all fought with Nerf swords and then hugged it out afterward.
